Beschreibung

This book opens a novel dimension in the 50-year history of mathematical theories of "information" since the birth of Shannon theory. First of all, it introduces, in place of the traditional notion of entropy and mutual information, the completely new and highly unconventional approach of "information-spectrum" as a basic but powerful tool for constructing the general theory of information. Reconstructing step-by-step all the essential major topics in information theory from the viewpoint of such an "information-spectrum", this comprehensive work provides an accessible introduction to the new type of mathematical theory of in- formation that focuses mainly on general nonstationary and/or nonergodic sources and channels, in clear contrast with the traditional theories of information. This book is a new non-traditional theoretical reference for communication professionals and statisticians specializing in information theory.

From the reviews:
MATHEMATICAL REVIEWS
"This book nicely complements the existing literature on information and coding theory by concentrating on arbitrary nonstationary and/or nonergodic sources and channels with arbitrarily large alphabets. Even with such generality the authors have managed to successfully reach a highly unconventional but very fertile exposition rendering new insights into many problems."
"This book proposes a generalization of information theory in the sense of Shannon to a situation with sources and channels being possibly nonstationary and/or nonergodic. ... This book presents useful and important concepts in information theory arising from original ideas of the author ... ." (A. Akutowicz, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1010, 2003)
